Favorite Verse:
John 16:33b

My name is Jonathan Shotts, and I’ve been on staff at HCA since 2019. I’m the Director of Spiritual Life, and I teach several of the Bible classes as well. As the Director of Spiritual Life, my focus is on creating a vibrant environment for the students in which spiritual formation can flourish. My heart for the students is that they would see the beauty of the gospel and commit themselves wholeheartedly to follow the way of Jesus. I’m passionate about helping them become like Christ, know the Scriptures, and discern the culture. When students leave HCA, I want them to know how Jesus directs and impacts every aspect of life.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Bible Studies from Criswell College and a Masters of Theology in Old Testament from Dallas Theological Seminary. Before HCA, I served in various roles of student ministry, worship ministry, and young adult ministry. Currently, I’m the Young Adults Director at Lake Ridge Bible Church in Mesquite.

I love the Scriptures, discipleship, God’s creation, good stories, and most importantly, I love spending my days with my beautiful wife Lauren and my sweet daughters Eliza and Lucy.
